File # Langley RCMP 2020-11928

The Langley RCMP would like to remind all lawful gun owners to store, transport and display firearms safely to prevent accidents and deter loss or theft

On June 30, 2020, the Langley RCMP Serious Crime Unit executed a search warrant on a rural property in Langley. During the search, 8 firearms and associated ammunition were located and seized as they were unsafely stored.
 

While other aspects of the original investigation are still ongoing, the Serious Crime Unit will be liaising with the Canadian Firearms Office to seek forfeiture of the improperly stored firearms.
 

Safe storage includes unloading and locking your firearms, utilizing trigger locks and a gun cabinet or safe.  These rules apply to all individuals. 

Be safe! Prevent firearms accidents!
